DAY 4 PROMPT – Limits

All limits are self imposed.

– Icarus

Do you agree with this quote? If you do, think about what limits you are imposing on yourself. Why are you imposing those limits?

If you disagree, then who or what do you think is responsible for your limits? 

What currently limits you?

  1. Yesterday, my husband was spending so much time trying get his stuff off his old computer I had no where to reply but the first thing I thought was I don’t like was chocolate cake I would love pineapple upside down cake.

    Today I took all the parts of the prompt and answered them one at a time. What it boils down to is I am very limited by MS.

  2. weird. Louise’s quote from Thelma and Louise, “you get what you settle for” has been in my brain the last few days.

  3. First I had to look up the definition for “limit” and like restrictive weakness. Now I can apply this to my current situation and admit that I do indeed, limit certain actions and behaviors.

  4. Funny how a day can change one’s perspective…

    Last night, I came home from my soul-sucking job too drained to post my answer to this question. All I could think of was that the job was pushing my limits to endure: Stressful environment, nasty coworkers, etc.

    The worst part was that I have a very important project I’m launching next month, but after my workday ended, I had no creativity or energy left over, which are essential for the success of my project.

    Then today, it really went to hell. I didn’t think it was possible, but it got EVEN WORSE.

    And I learned what’s beyond my limits: Not caring.

    And now I feel FREE.

    No more attachment.

    It’s just a JOB.

    It’s NOT who I am, and NOT what I want to do for any longer than I have to, let alone for the rest of my life.

    And I now my head is quiet, I have peace, and my energy is restored…none of which would have been possible if I still cared and was willing to let the job suck the life out of me.
